The No. 1 seed Illinois Fighting Illini are -22.5 point favorites over the No. 16 seed Drexel Dragons on Friday, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

The high point-spread has not stopped bettors from wagering on the Illini, as 64% of the bets and 84% of the money has been wagered on Illinois thus far. The Illini are a trendy pick to win the national championship, so it makes sense that bettors think they kick off the NCAA tournament with a dominating win. Illinois made bettors a lot of money this year, as they were 18-10-1 ATS. However, Drexel was also an impressive 12-5-2 ATS this year, so it will be interesting to see if more money comes in on the Dragons before tip-off.
